內容簡介


數學界的《蘋果橘子經濟學》!

學校所教的數學像一連串無趣規則,由古人制定並流傳於世,完全沒有置疑的空間。除了國小的加減乘除,再多公式就與市井小民日常生活完全脫節──其實你錯怪數學了!這位數學博士也是創意寫作碩士,他充滿熱忱與才華,致力將數學翻譯成麻瓜也能懂的常人語言,讓喜愛數學的讀者大快朵頤,對數學沒有感情的讀者則能回心轉意、與數學破鏡重圓。數學,其實是一門避免犯錯的科學,是常識的歸納與延伸。看懂數學,能讓你的直覺更犀利、判斷更精準!

The maths we learn in school can seem like an abstract set of rules, laid down by the ancients and not to be questioned. In fact, Jordan Ellenberg shows us, maths touches on everything we do, and a little mathematical knowledge reveals the hidden structures that lie beneath the world's messy and chaotic surface. In How Not to be Wrong, Ellenberg explores the mathematician's method of analyzing life, from the everyday to the cosmic, showing us which numbers to defend, which ones to ignore, and when to change the equation entirely. Along the way, he explains calculus in a single page, describes G+┬del's theorem using only one-syllable words, and reveals how early you actually need to get to the airport.
